  1. 330i Delayed Deceleration?

    General E46 Forum
    Hey everyone, so as the title states, up until just yesterday, car was running fine, no issues. Yesterday I ended up getting an EML light which would also go into limp mode. This seems to have been fixed by removing the idle control valve and cleaning it out, code was P1500. After this, the EML...
  2. Limp mode FOG

    General E46 Forum
    I am new to the forum but amazed that .. for an E46 which has been around a VERY long time, little seems to be actually, definitively known about limp mode. Lots of guessing .. little solid knowledge. Even how it is defined is hazy. Some say it just limits your speed while others show video of...

  5. EML & Traction Control Light in Limp Mode SOLVED

    General E46 Forum
    I had a problem for the past week where the EML and Traction Control would suddenly turn on and throw the car into Limp Mode. The only help I could find in Forums was to check the Wheel Sensor or to check the ECU. The codes I was getting were P1122 and P1121 which are related to the Pedal...
  6. Idle issues + Car acting weird

    General E46 Forum
    I have a 2001 330ci that I've recently been having issues with. I replaced the fuel filter about a month ago, since I was getting engine lights about low intake. That fixed the issue of that. But, im not sure what the heck is going on. I've been researching for a bit but everyone has 30...
  7. Bad Battery Causing Limp Mode?

    General E46 Forum
    I've been having a rather occasional problem (only happened twice so far) with my M3. The DSC, Oil, EML, and Battery lights come on and limp mode ensues. It then starts to have trouble maintaining idle. This last time, the engine died. If I turn the car off and back on, it runs fine. I didn't...
  8. M3 Limp Mode, DSC - Please Advise

    General E46 Forum
    About an hour ago my m3 went into limp mode. I was driving on a wet street and gave car some some extra gas to get through a light. The dsc came on and cut power. A second later, the eml came on and the car went into limp mode. I pulled over and restarted the car. No issues after and I didn't...
  9. Weird errors all over the place

    General E46 Forum
    My 2000 323i wagon blew a coil 2 days ago and I replaced it same-day with a BREMI coil. Worked like a charm for all of 16 hours. Yesterday afternoon, out of nowhere, my car begins to shudder, lose almost all power, and throws SES, EML, and DSC. I pulled over, turned it off, waited 30 seconds...

  11. Throttle Sensor - EML - P0221

    General E46 Forum
    So I've been having the christmas tree light up (the one where the ornaments are: DSC, ABS, BRAKE, EML) since I bought the car, but it's never been often enough for me to do anything about it. The lights would come on, sometimes with a P0221 error code, I would restart the car and keep driving...
  12. New MAF - check engine / eml ??

    General E46 Forum
    Hi guys, I like to keep my car as close to new as possible. I changed all the filter and oil recently and still have about 12 K KM until the next service. I found a very nice new MAF from Pierburg, only the sensor without the housing at a good price and installed it. My bad, I forgot to...
  13. Eml + dsc + p1542 = help!!!

    General E46 Forum
    Got a 2000 328i. Trying to figure out what's causing my EML and DSC to come on, throwing my car into limp mode with a P1542 code. I searched the forums and so far have cleaned the throttle body, ICV, DISA, and MAF. It worked for a couple days, now it's on again, but intermittently. I can...

  15. 323CI EML Light HELP!!

    General E46 Forum
    So I recently just bought this car from probably the biggest D bag on the planet because he fixed everything with superglue, zip ties, and electrical tape. I've been going through the car and fixing things that go wrong with it. I have run into an issue though. Every morning, like clockwork...
  16. Help! 2001 325i m54b25 engine

    General E46 Forum
    So my car was leaking oil, gas was dripping under engine as well as making smell like gasoline in the cabin, so I changed the oil filter housing gasket, put a brand new fuel pump in, tried cleaning ccv and tunes connected with it, also put a new serpentine belt on just cause I was already in...
  17. Car Going Into "Limp Mode"

    General E46 Forum
    I have a 2001 330i that's starting to give me some problems. In the beginning, EML, Traction Controal, and Brake light would all illuminate yellow, causing the car to go into limp mode, about once a week. Recently, it's began to do it at least 4 to 5 times a day. After turning the car off and...
  18. Cleared Check Engine Light... problems begin.

    General E46 Forum
    I impulsively bought my 2003 325i last fall because it looked great and was priced right. It ran great for the last ten months and 4,000 miles. Check engine light came on after I fueled the last time however. (had difficulty twisting gas cap off) I assumed the gas cap wasn't sealing but...
  19. Intermittent EML + SES light when driving

    General E46 Forum
    Hey guys, I've had a 2003 325i for about 3 years now and have had no problems until recently. About a month ago, the EML and SES light will come on while I'm driving. It comes on for about 2 or 3 seconds and then it will turn off. While its on it seems like the engine is stalling or in limp...
